    Why not just get a prescription?

    Dude, you are admitting to a crime that is quite possibly a felony, depending on how many pills you have.

    Hopefully they'll screen your addicted posterior out in a hurry.

    I'm thinking he/you should do that...but to do that, you would need to see a shrink (nothing wrong with that). Perhaps if you had your issues straightened out (even if it ment you were still on Xanax (if FDNY allows it, Rx form)). Give it time (probably a year), apply then?

    I'm not familiar with your situation or FDNY, so I'm just throwing this out there.

    You posted the same question on the rant. Do you realize you are committing a crime by taking xanax without a prescription?

    A regular Internal Medicine doctor will prescribe Xanax (ALPRAZOLAM)....no need to see the head-shrinker.

    But, if you are taking Xanax WITHOUT a prescription it is a crime.
    Xanax is a Schedule IV drug

    That's what I meant. I guess I just use the term loosely between the two (psychiatrist & psychologist) however I do know the difference.

    Default just be honest

    dont know about how FDNY preforms their screenings but for advise just be honest. I know it sounds tacky but when they do your back ground and they ask about any drug use, let them know about it and why. then leave it up to them. Better honest and then they know the have it pop up and fail.

    billy, go ahead and pop all the xanax you want without worry, then send captain bob a pm with your problem. I'm sure he's got a way around the drug screen. Probably won't cost you a penny more than a script from your doc.

    Default Who are you people

    Is this a police forum or a firefighter forum? I'm pretty sure the dude realizes that he needs a prescription. Show a little compassion or go find your true calling in law enforcement. xanax will stay with you for about a week. I don't know of any publicly funded department that is going to inncur the expense for a hair folicle test. I know you implied you were going to stop taking the pills in your post but i'll say it anyway, stop. And don't mind those other jack asses their probably just ****ed that they made it thru the UA and flunked out of recruit academy.

    Exclamation Hummm

    You should go to your Dr. and tell him that you took a family member or firends pills to help you sleep. You realize that taking the non RX medication was dumb, but you trusted your family member / friend and they really did help you sleep and they did help your over all health.

    Tell him you would like to make sure the pills are safe for you and ask him to write you an RX so you can take the meds leagally and safely.

    If the FDNY asks, you can show them the bottel with the RX on it and you will be in the clear. If you can not get a DR. to write a RX, it will be best to just tell the department what happend if they catch you. Never never never lie, that is a sure way to get fired.

    Good Luck, you will be fine.

    I just love all of you who think that if you just tell the truth everything will be ok. Its this simple if the med wasnt prescribed to you, you need to shave your head let it grow a bit and then take your own money and get a test and make sure you are clean. If you test positive they dont care if its your moms or not. It wasn't yours and they have thousands waiting for the job.

    good luck
